Hi Rajesh
As per my point of view, career objective is not looking sound enough and most important
frequently changing jobs..................and if you will write time sapn in front of
organisation name, instead of in last it will be helpful..........
my opinion : If I was a HR, 4 pages of reume` will "Exhaust" me a little bit. That gives no first impression to a HR....
in two years he has worked for 3 companies, & looking out for 4th one. Frequency of changing job is too high with this resume & that to a managerial post... It may be the key reason to get rejected.
He didnot prepare the resume genuinely he just cut and pasted from somewhere else. The font is diffrents. It is basic point i got it otherthan the above.
As per my view, his first job is Area Sales Manager, No such company will give first job as Manager?
Thnaks for the inputs......some counter questions.......... 1st job started as Area sales manager since the organisation did not have a presence in Kerala and the designation was given because they had only one resource in Kerala. What to do? not mention the designation? Frequent changes ........wanted to move to retail therefore Subiksha after one year.........bad luck .......Subiksha closed down .should that be mentioned in CV?
Then joined next company ...had to quit due to family circumstances......
Need yur help in revising the CV.....
as per my view, the difference of fonts in any letter or communication is very bad impression, secondly the headers are very huge as compared to story font size.
The resume should be presentable, with same size and pattern of fonts, arrange it as per above comments.
I wouid rather say, put the note for Subhiksha as it was not your fault whereas for 3rd company change, you have to elaborate during the interview. For Area Sales Manager, I dont think it should give a problem for a company as everyone knows in and out. But yes, make the resume presentable. About the length of resume, Pages are sufficient, but include more of your roles and responsibilities, reports you made, work you supervised.
1) Try and limit your CV at the most in two pages.
2) remove the repeating data.
eg club work experience and previous work experiences.
3) Correct all the grammatical errors. you can easily do it by auto correct option in MS word.
4) Maintain a constant style through-out your resume
Why dont you try by not putting the end date in the last company worked. Atleast you would get some calls from other org or agengies. You could mention the reasons to them when you speak to them. Many recruitment agencies just reject without even speaking to the candidates & not knowing the reasons, although the candidate may be really good. This is just a way around to get calls & getting Interviews arranged atleast. Rest you could crack the interview if you are really good enough.
The resume is not presentable. Also frequest change of jobs. Definitely, seem to be a stability issue.
As per my view the resume format has to be changed along with the fonts and Headings.
The period of joing should be mentioned below the company profile followd by duties and responsibilities. Try to write your own Points instead of cut, paste.
limit ur Cv to Two Pages only
hi i feel 1. frequent shifting - major problem.
Minor changes: 2. career objectives says niche (what kind of Niche in field of marketing) could be specified - for attracting 3. problem with presentation (runs in para can be simplified to points where ever possible) to save time of reader 4. language description in terms of read, write and speak
All the best - hope it is of use
Just go through the cv in detail & notice one thing that the said person is looking out a job from last few months, hopefully all of you notice, that the person, during his total tenure he had not completed not more that one year in a company. Sometimes he had changed his job withing 4 months. In his position it is not a good impression, frequently change his job is a bad impact on his career. Second thing , may be he was a qualifed person but 4 pages CV is too long & all of we know that a HR manager never accept a CV which is more the 2 pages.
The CV should be in details but ofcourse maintain the limitation which is not in the quoted CV. Hopefully, the said thing is clear to everyone if anything wrong with me or anything left by me please let me know the same as I am also want to know where I had missed.
1) the frequent changes in employment (not more than one year in any of the previous experiences) can be one of the reasons.
2) his career objective is not very clear.
3) may be his attempt to find placement in retail industry can be another reason.

Hi Dear,
Sarah is Right Stability issues he keep changing his company in evey Month and Year ,May be his Personal Prblms was their but Company Wont Understand his Problm while screening his Resume.
You need to spell check your CV before you send to prospective employers. The fonts are different, layout is not proper. You need to redo the whole CV - make it precise and short
As i go through the CV, the CV is not decent and there are too many grammer and spelling mistakes....
Hey , dont you know the Job market was in a pathetic condition . Change the key words if ur subscribing to any job portals . Everything is fine . U had a genine reason for a Job change. The company closed so what can you do. There is no loyality issues . You had a good start . Situation will change for good then you lecture all that you had survived the worst times and how pateintly/ impatiently we have overcomed that.
Keep hunting

First and foremost....I don't think it is about either about the frequently changing jobs or the style / font / format of the resume that is the problem..........Sometimes (Read it as Most of the times) it is the perception of the onlooker which matters.........

1. It would definitely strike someone that there has been a frequent change of jobs, but with no change of profile which can always be attributed to the individual's grip on the field of work opted.

2. Agreed to certain extent that the font / style / format do matter because now-a-days we have an increasing number of automated resume screening processes rather than the manual one where the essence of the document is lost and only the key words are picked up.

3. The most appealing point is that it says "Has an ability to rectify his own mistakes and wiling to learn at every step in life." How many of us would actually dare to put on something like this on our resume let alone the fact if it were actually required or not.

If I were to come across a resume like this, would definitely loved to have interviewed such an individual.

Wishing him all luck!!!!!!
The resume is not at ll impressive for a viewer.A candidate with retail exposure should add more consecutive points.And also with consistency issues.Moreover Retail industry has not started the hardcore recruitments after the crisis.
The CV needs a re framing.Career obj.-omit it. polish the language. put the personal info like add. on the left. photo on left. pl. dont paste the photo at all. Skill sets should be presented pointedly. area of interest is not projected. the CV lacks a sense of confidance.Take help of sites which would guide to use the right wordson Google.
He is straightway showing duration of his service which is creating negative effect on HR personal. rest details are seems to be right and in order. Manish Gupta
Hi, I feel the very first question that will come in the Hr’s mind will be why he left the job when he don’t had another one on hand.
